You may remember Kassie and Brad from their stunning engagement session earlier this year (see it HERE if you missed it).
They met in the 9th grade and they’ve been dating ever since – except for that first year when Kassie friend-zoned him because she knew she wanted to marry him someday and didn’t want to ruin it since they were so young. 8 long years later, she finally gets to call Brad her husband. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room when Kassie shared a first look with her dad and brothers.
And instead of doing a First Look with Brad, Kassie opted to read letters to each other with only a wall in between them.
It stormed terribly during the ceremony, but it had slowed to a light drizzle by the time we got to their portraits. I told Kassie, “We’ll keep you under the porches to keep you dry but if you’re up for it, we have a black umbrella and-” She said, “YES!” before I could even finish my sentence. As Brad’s mom joined him for their first dance, he handed her a letter to read. Bring on the tears.
